Hot and humid this weekend before a cold front arrives on Monday

Fall-like weather arrives next week!

NEW ORLEANS — RELATED: Track Rain on Southeast Louisiana Radar

Another hot and humid weekend will be upon us before a cold front moves in on Monday.

Highs will be in the lower 90s both today and Sunday and with the humidity it'll feel like the upper 90s.

A cold front is scheduled to move through Monday but we won't feel that fall-like weather until Tuesday.

With an upper trough pushing a cold front into our area on Monday, it'll also pull Tropical Storm Ian which should be a hurricane by then, away from SE LA into Florida. 

The rest of next week beginning on Tuesday will feel less humid and cooler. 

Eye on the Tropics:

There are currently four named storms in the tropics we are watching. The one storm we're paying more attention to is Tropical Storm Ian. As of Saturday morning, Ian continues to swirl through the central Caribbean showing no signs of weakening. The latest forecast suggests that it'll stay a tropical storm through the weekend.  an is expected to strengthen into a category 1 hurricane Sunday night staying west of the Cayman Islands bringing hurricane conditions to that island. Then making a curve to the northwest eventually making landfall near the western tip of Cuba. As it moves into the southeast Gulf of Mexico, further strengthening is likely before making landfall somewhere along the west coast of Florida as a major category 3 storm Thursday morning. Most tropical models are in general agreement with a west Florida coast landfall Thursday.  

Fiona is now a post-tropical system as it continues to move over the Canadian Maritimes bringing strong gusty winds and heavy rain. It's expected to continue to weaken as it moves over Canada.

Tropical Gaston continues to bring tropical storm conditions to the Azores Islands today and is expected to remain over the northern Atlantic before dissipating in the next few days.

Tropical Storm Hermine will stay in the eastern Atlantic close to the western coast of Africa. It'll eventually weaken into a depression as early as Tuesday..

Currently there are no tropical threats to SE LA and it should remain that way in the next 5 days.
